The pound sterling is hanging in there at 50 Thai baht but there is expected to be some volatility around the upcoming EU referendum. Buy some Bahts now.

With less frequent visa runs now needed, a friend of mine recently complained of his lack of cheap booze usually bought on trips to Cambodia. Well, I’ve always said he was a borderline alcoholic.
